Colin Powell visits Fort Campbell for Book Signing

 

Written by Megan Locke Simpson
Fort Campbell Courier

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Exemplary leadership is a key aspect of military service, and one former Secretary of State Colin Powell learned while 2nd Brigade commander at Fort Campbell in 1976. He visited Fort Campbell Wednesday for the first time since retiring as a part of a tour promoting his newly-released book, “It Worked for Me: In Life and Leadership,” co-written with Tony Koltz.

The book explores leadership through a series of parables from Powell’s own life, drawing heavily from his military career and time as the 65th Secretary of State in George W. Bush’s administration. The book chronicles experiences from his upbringing in Harlem to the now-famous Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction speech he delivered to the United Nations in 2003.

Jennifer Krog watches as Colin Powell signs a copy of his new book, "It Worked for Me: In Life and Leadership," at Fort Campbell's Post Exchange Wednesday afternoon. Powell, who once served as 2nd Brigade commander for the 101st Airborne Division in 1976, revisited the installation on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line as a part of his book tour.
